Crawshaw won’t be getting out early Murderer applied under ‘faint hope clause’

B.C. Supreme Court jury has rejected convicted murderer Allan Crawshaw’s last chance for early parole. The Chilliwack man is serving a life sentence for shooting his boss, Trevor Newberry three times in the head in front of a Sardis food-processing plant 20 years ago. He is not eligible for parole until May 2018 but was in court in Chilliwack this month seeking to have that time moved up under the so-called “faint hope clause,” which allows prisoners serving life sentences to apply for earlier parole eligibility after serving 15 years. (The statute has been removed, but remains in force for offences committed before Dec. 2, 2011.) A jury in New Westminster had denied Crashaw’s first faint-hope application three years ago but left room for him to file it again after two years. There was no such provision in the jury’s decision in Chilliwack Wednesday. It unanimously rejected his application, and the 66-year-old will now serve a full 25 years before being eligible for parole. During closing submissions last Tuesday, defence counsel Donna Turko argued Crawshaw has spent years in jail learning to manage the paranoid personality disorder that See CRAWSHAW, Page 3

ore than eight years after conception and two years after being approved by Chilliwack city council, homeless, addicted and mentally ill individuals will soon begin moving into a housing and social services centre at the site of the old Days Inn on Young Road. Renovations are finished at the facility—which is located kitty corner to city hall—and in July people will start occupying the 22 supportive housing units, according to the proponent, Pacific Community Resources Society (PCRS). Once fully operational, likely in September, the centre will be a onestop access point to primary health care, mental-health, addictions, employment and social services for Chilliwack’s at-risk populations. The project has faced a number of hurdles over the years, including concern in late 2010 that the grant from the B.C. government had disappeared when the purchase of the Trader’s Inn downtown fell through. And while city council gave unanimous support to the rezoning in March 2011, many neighbours expressed opposition. Council received two petitions of opposition to the rezoning as well as numerous letters of support from organizations, some directly involved in the proposed facility. Seven neighbours and business owners spoke out against the rezoning at the 2011 meeting. None were against the idea of the facility itself, but rather were opposed to the

Sto:lo hereditary chief Ken Malloway speaks in Vancouver on Friday about his opposition to the Yale First Nation treaty. CRAWSHAW, from page 1 led him come to work during a one-day suspension armed with three pipe bombs and a rifle, and shoot Newberry in the face at point-blank range in the Fraser Valley Foods parking lot. Turko said the former union shop steward was still in a paranoid state at his 1994 trial when he threatened to kill more Fraser Valley Foods managers if workers didn’t get a raise. But he has made progress since then, Turko argued, and has completed every Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) program available to him to help him control with his personality disorder. “There’s really nothing more for him to do in prison,” she said. She also noted all four expert witnesses questioned about Crawshaw’s psychological readiness for release agreed he could be managed in the community and that he presented only a moderate risk. Crown counsel Henry Waldock, however, argued the question wasn’t whether Crawshaw “could” be granted early parole but whether he “should.” Under the Criminal Code,Waldock told the

And he noted Crawshaw not only planned and carried out the killing but also “leveraged” and “magnified” its impact when he went on to threaten other FraserValley Foods managers in open court and to the press. Waldock further argued that Crawshaw has yet to take full responsibility for his crime. During the hearing, Crawshaw told the jury that he had not planned to kill Newberry 20 years ago and that the rifle “went off” when Newberry came at him in the parking lot. Based on evidence from Crawshaw’s original trial and his first degree murder conviction, however, Waldock argued Newberry’s killing was planned and deliberate and that Crawshaw still only “repents of half of what he did.” “He may believe it, but it’s not reliable,” said Waldock of Crawshaw’s version of the killing. “Twenty years of counselling, and I submit he doesn’t get it.”

incident at Echo nightclub

Chilliwack businessman is among two men charged in connection with an incident involving a gun at a local nightclub last week. Mounties say a handgun was pointed at employees of the Echo Room Night Club after two men were asked to leave the bar early in the morning of May 22. RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Len vanNieuwenhuizen said police attended the bar around 1:55 a.m. and arrested two suspects nearby. One of the men was tasered during the arrest. VanNieuwenhuizen said “this inci-

dent reflects the value and success of the Chilliwack Bar Watch Program.” He said the pair were flagged by bouncers because they appeared intoxicated. Edwin (Ted) Shipley, 53, has been charged with pointing a firearm, possessing a weapon for a dangerous purpose and wilfully resisting and obstructing arrest. Shipley owns several local businesses. Also charged is 27-year-old Kevin Douthwright. He faces three counts: carrying a concealed weapon, unauthorized possession of a firearm, and possessing a weapon for a dangerous purpose. Both have since been released on conditions.

Mini-clinic on wheels BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

C

hilliwack’s mobile needle exchange van just got a serious upgrade. What was for nearly six years a needle exchange program operated out of a Dodge mini-van, is now a miniclinic for homeless and drugaddicted people in a 22-foot, custom-renovated Ford bus. “This is a tremendous step toward improving what was already a very successful program,” said city councillor Stewart McLean, co-chair of the Chilliwack Healthier Community Stewardship Council (HCSC). “To put this kind of resource on the street, where it can reach so many of our marginalized residents, is exactly the kind of initiative we want in Chilliwack.” Pacific Community Resources (PCRS) operates the Chilliwack-based program with funding and a mandate from the Fraser Health Authority (FHA). The original idea focused on collecting used needles from intravenous drug users, to stem the spread of HIV and hepatitis C. A press release points out that while Abbotsford debates and agonizes over establish-

Improved needle exchange

ing a needle-exchange program, Chilliwack has had one for 20 years. “Our local businesses and government have been very supportive,” said Kim Lloyd, program co-ordinator. “We work directly with the Downtown BIA and if any of their cleanup crews find a syringe, they return it to us.” While in the past, clients of the mobile needle exchange had to stand out in all weather where it is usually parked—at Young Road and Princess Street, noon to 4 p.m., five days a week—now clients can sit inside, receive health and outreach services, get testing and vaccinations, and receive simple supplies like toiletries and clothing. FHA outreach worker Tom McMahon knows many of the clients personally. He recalled “some church ladies” who seemed apprehensive about the program when they first saw the old van and stopped to ask what was going on. “They returned the next day with some baked goods for the clients,” McMahon said. “It’s not unusual for people to inquire about us, then come back with blankets or clothing or food.”

The vehicle, called the “Healthy Options” bus, was donated to PCRS by Surrey’s Mobile Youth Outreach (MoYO) program. The bus has a new “skin” as part of its PCRS makeover—an original depiction of Chilliwack scenery painted on the side. The bus is operated as part of the new health contact centre at Young Road and Hocking Avenue. In fact, some of the retrofitting for the van came from furniture taken out of what was the Days Inn where the health contact centre is.

◗ Opinion

A little Chicken Little W atching the news out of Alberta these past few days, it’s hard not to feel sympathy and imagine what it would be like here if water of that magnitude came rushing through the Fraser Valley. Increasingly in news coverage from around the world there is flooding and more flooding. As Calgarians scramble to clean up, more than a thousand people are reported dead in India as a result of water bursting banks. There has been some criticism about preparedness for the deluge that hit Calgary and High River. The Alberta government has argued that some floods simply can’t be prepared for. The water was closer to a one-in-a 1,000-year flood than a one-in-a100-year event. Back at home, we had very little to be concerned about this year as the freshet came and went almost unnoticed. Last year was a different story as the water came and came, forcing a handful of residents (outside the dike system) from their homes. Last spring I met an elderly man in Chilliwack where Ballam Road hits the Fraser River. Hands in pockets, he ambled towards me to tell me what he thought of this freshet; this supposed high water. “I’ve been here for 40 years,

PAUL J. HENDERSON

SimplyA Musing I’ve seen water over this road and they’ve never closed it,” he said, pointing to Ballam and the barricades placed there by city staff. I told him that I thought the city was being cautious, and that the water this year was, while not threatening to the dike or the city, going to likely hit levels not seen in 40 years. As community newspaper reporters we are used to covering some stories year after year: tax rates, the Fair, the freshet. News is cyclical and those seemingly repetitive stories are relevant. But some old-timers may have grown weary of stories of the supposed flood threat that never materializes. We have to weigh fear-mongering with information providing: The water is coming. It might be bad. It might not be. It probably won’t be. Be ready . . . but don’t freak out. Got it? I’ve only been in Chilliwack since 2006 so I missed the high water of 1997 and 1972, and of course I wasn’t around for the

flood of 1948 or the epic one-ina-100-year flood of 1894. But I was here in 2006 when the Chilliwack River burst its banks causing some mild havoc in the river valley and I was here in 2007 when the flood threat was, well, frankly, out of control. In the good-news-for-peoplewho-like-bad-news file, I was happy to write many dozen stories in 2007 on the flood that never was. Last year, I was quick to cover the freshet but as soon as the TV media rolled into town with their quick-clip mentality, I did try to downplay the threat, which was, frankly, close to non-existent. We in the media can be hyperbolic in our coverage of flood threats. But maybe reiterating safety measures, hammering home worst-case scenarios from time to time, isn’t such a bad idea. The lesson from Calgary may be that while high water may be common, a severe flash flood that takes lives and causes billions in damage can come any year. What is needed is vigilance in the face of an all-too easy apathy. Our job at the paper is to balance the need to keep residents aware of the actual threat year after year while avoiding Chicken Little journalism. The sky isn’t falling. The Fraser River isn’t flooding. But next year . . . who knows.

.C. politics is never short on irony. Take, for example, Premier Christy Clark’s recent action to hike political staffers’ wages, and then after feeling the heat, deciding to backtrack on the decision. She gets brownie points for taking full responsibility for the utter stupidity of the move. After all, didn’t we hear endless platitudes about tightening belts during the very recent election campaign? (According to media reports, Clark and her outgoing cabinet increased the top allowable salaries for political aides to $102,000 from a previous ceiling of $94,500—initially the outgoing cabinet raised the maximum to $105,000, but the incoming cabinet brought the amount down before the issue became public. The move came as part of a reorganization that elevated top advisers from the role of ministerial assistants to chiefs of staff for each individual minister.) And then, on top of that, one of the first things she does is hike her own staff’s wages to exceed what President Obama pays for his own right-hand man in the White House. To say that this all didn’t sit well with B.C. taxpayers is a bit of an understatement. But what is equally ironic is that Clark’s main criticism of Adrian Dix during the election campaign was that he “flip flopped” on everything. Seriously? You just can’t make this stuff up. We hope that this first misjudgment by the new premier is a one-off due to a lack of sleep as she juggled appointing her new cabinet, hiring staffers and kick-starting her own election campaign in Kelowna. To be sure, she’s got a lot on her plate. But, Clark needs to walk the talk and lead by example. There are kids in school districts, such as Chilliwack, who will have to do without—at least partially —because of a lack of provincial funding, and now is certainly not the time to be throwing taxpayers’ money at your staff.

Tax dollars should benefit all who pay their taxes Editor: I keep hearing how successful Party in the Park is. If that’s the case then why does the cost go up every year and why is it necessary for the taxpayer to fund it? Any business or company can look successful if it’s subsidized. Start charging vendors, visitors and patrons an entry fee and see how many people show up. I’m sure there isn’t a business in Chilliwack that couldn’t use some funding from the City of Chilliwack to attract business. And, if these businesses or companies offered free anything, then 75 per cent of the population would likely attend and these businesses or companies would appear successful. When was the last time that the Vedder/Yale Road corridor was completely repaved? I’m sure that its been nearly 20 years, and maybe my eyes need to be checked but almost every street in Chilliwack needs to be re-lined. How about putting some of the Party in the Park money towards this stuff which would benefit all of the Chilliwack residents. C. Kozlik Chilliwack

Time to change the system Editor: I read the story, in horror, about the toddler subjected to months of sexual abuse by a criminal, yet the mother was not aware of this? I believe the mother is just as responsible for this tragedy. This poor little girl has lost so much and hasn’t even started living yet. She will need countless hours of counselling, and will find it difficult to trust again. The worst tragedy though, is that this awful man will only get 10 to 12 years in prison. He should never get out—ever. I hope someone visits him in prison and takes their best clippers ever and does everyone a favour by ensuring he can never do this again to anyone. Our incompetent and useless justice system in Canada fails again. This man should never see the light of day, ever, and I think there are a lot of people out there that think the same. I simply don’t care if he is mentally ill. I don’t care what he went through in his early years. I don’t care if someone offered him drugs and he took them and got hooked on them, his life means nothing. But, the little girl’s, the victim’s rights, should be the only one considered. Why do lawyers, like Evans for instance, even

lower themselves to defend such scum? Money? Our legal system has still not figured out that we are not in the 1800s any longer. Guess what, it is 2013 now, time for a big, big change. Jeanne Fairweather Chilliwack

More useful than you think Editor: In response to Mr. Colin Gender’s letter regarding early French immersion: Dear Mr. Gender: As a proud bilingual Canadian I’d like to tell you what all the kerfuffle is about. If your presumption that the parents seeking early immersion programs for their children for the sole purpose of finding employment with the federal government is correct, I’d say that’s a smart plan since the federal government is the

largest employer in Canada with nearly 180,000 jobs, and 72,000 of those jobs being designated bilingual positions. Did you not realize that the employment opportunities extend way beyond government? Employers in all sectors are looking for bilingual employees, from customer service to accounting, to communications, marketing and medicine. I guess you didn’t realize that with the increasing globalized world, where more than 30 countries have French as an official language and more than 220 million French speakers worldwide, bilingual employees can work with multinational corporations working in or with other French speaking parts of the world such as France, Switzerland, Belgium, North and sub-Saharan Africa. French is both a working language and an official language of the UN, the EU,

UNESCO, NATO, the IOC, the Red Cross and the international courts. After English and German, French is the third most used language on the Internet, ahead of Spanish. French is also a good base language for learning other languages, especially Spanish and even English since 50 per cent of current English vocabulary is derived from French. Being fluent in French offers access to great works of literature, film and songs in their original form. French is the language of Victor Hugo, Moliere, Leopold Sendar Senghor, Edith Piaf, Jean-Paul Sartre, Alain Delon and Zinedine Zidane. And why French as a second language? Because we are Canadian and French is an official language here in this amazing country. Being able to communicate in both our official languages builds a bridge not only to our people, but to our heritage and our history as a bilingual country. Still think it’s not very useful? Franceska Fuller Chilliwack

Buy local, but don’t gouge Editor: I have to agree with Lou Raboin in the letters column (Chilliwack Times, June 20). We stopped at the bottom

of Promontory to pick up some cherries. When my wife came back to the car I just laughed—$3.50 a pound for cherries when they’re not paying union wages, no permit, no business licence, no taxes, no overhead. How much are the growers getting? I totally agree let’s buy local, but let’s not gouge local. Norm Paisley Chilliwack

Unborn victims deserve rights Editor: An open letter to Mark Strahl, MP regarding “Putting victims’ rights first” column in the June 18 Chilliwack Times. Mr. Strahl, there is no doubt that the intention of this bill is honourable and that your support of it is commendable. This private member’s bill was sponsored by one of your colleagues. Are you open for a suggestion? A private member’s bill sponsored by you to protect another group of people who are presently being brutalized in our society would be very fitting. There are hundreds of unborn Canadian children that are physically and fatally being brutalized every day. Yes they are being brutalized; being callously dismembered has

to be described as brutal. You must be aware of the evidence that has come out about the practices of a certain Mr. Gosnell in his abortuaries in the U.S. There is no difference in this practice between a U.S. facility or a Canadian facility. No amount of masking, clean or dirty facilities, can change the fact of the brutality of killing children, whether they are born or unborn. Every individual, innocent, helpless baby in the womb is silently screaming at us for the full protection of Canadian law. Muliplying this individual scream by about 275 of them per day, or if you like, about 100,000 per year in our (great?) nation, the urgency of protective action should be heard very clearly by you. The suggestion? It is your turn to do something about this situation, and quickly at that. Every five minutes another scream is silenced. Martin Maljaars Chilliwack

The hard-working Chilliwack women did muster a couple solid chances to test the Pinnacles keeper in the first half, but they found themselves down by two goals on defensive errors. A third Pinnacles goal was well-earned after a hard charge by the striker. Things then got even worse for the local women when the Pinnacles’ most dangerous for ward was taken down inside the box, leading to a yellow card and

Chilliwack Walks

Eating and dressing right for your walks K

eep your walk from being cut short by dressing appropriately and fuelling yourself regularly throughout the day. Pick a shoe with good cushioning and support. A proper shoe should keep your foot aligned properly. Consider choosing a shoe designed for trail use. The darker colours and aggressive treads disguise dirt and prevent wear and tear. Keep moisture away from your body by wearing technical fibre clothing which contains a moisture management system. People are discouraged from choosing cotton clothes as they become heavy and may start rubbing against your skin, creating blisters. Tired of being weighed down by your water bottle? Try a fuel belt. A series of six-ounce water bottles distribute the weight of the water around your body. Any one who exercises can be at risk for dehydration; you should drink to replace the amount you lose in sweat, Weigh yourself before and after exercise. Any change will be water and that is how much you have left to replace. Remember the following fluid intake guideline: Two cups of fluid two to three hours before exercise; One cup of fluid 15 minutes before com-

ver wonder how many steps you take in an average day? Now, with the aid of a pedometer, it’s possible to find out. A handy electronic device about the size of a pack of playing cards, a pedometer clips on to your belt or waistband and keeps track of how many steps you take and measures the distance you travelled while you wear it. If you’re just starting out on a walking program, it’s an ideal way to get instant feedback and help you stay motivated as you watch that step count grow. The first thing to do is wear it while you go about your normal daily routine. This will give you a base figure to work from. After determining the number of steps you usually take during an average day, it then becomes

possible to look for ways to increase the figure. Setting targets is a good way to go, but you should build incrementally and not try to do too much at once if you haven’t been active. While some may advocate 10,000 steps a day as a goal, the most important thing is to begin a program that makes sense for you and allows you to increase the amount of steps you take. If you average around 3,000 steps a day, moving to 4,000 is an increase of more than 30 per cent and an accomplishment you can take pride in. There are 650 steps in half a kilometre. It doesn’t seem that great a distance and once you start measuring your own daily step count, you’ll be surprised how far you actually travel in a normal day.

hilliwack’s Cheam Vaulters kicked off their summer show season with a bang this month at the 2013 Jump Into June vaulting competition at Greystone Stables in Delta. The first Equine Canada competition of the year, the show gave the local club a chance to test new routines and new horses for the season ahead. At the National AA level, Cheam coach Alisa Schmidt-Anema captured first in freestyle and second overall in the highest division. At the National A level, Haigen Pavan racked up personal-best scores en route to a first-place finish

Cheam Vaulters Jump into June in the men’s division. Cassie Sponchia earned first in second-round freestyle at the provincial canter level and fourth in round two overall. Abigale Wynberg placed third in round two and fourth overall while Taylor Eamor finished sixth in round one. All three girls achieved personal best scores during the weekend. In beginning canter, two Cheam vaulters earned qualifying scores for the 2014 B.C. Summer Games. (Vaulting is one of the core sports now featured every two years in the provin-

cial multi-game competition.) Deseray Smith earned fourth in round one and sixth overall while Shianne Peters placed sixth in round one and seventh overall. Both girls were by far the youngest competitors at this level. At the beginning walk level, meanwhile, Hannah Campbell placed second overall in her first recognized competition while Sage Bennedictson took third in compulsories and fourth overall in the under-age-10 category and Sam Kennedy placed fourth in

freestyle and fifth overall. Cheam’s pairs entries also did well, with Alisa Schmidt-Anema and Darla Ricka capturing first, Cassie Sponchia and Haigen Pavan taking second, and Taylor Eamor and Abigale Wynberg placing fourth in compulsories and fifth overall. Cheam also entered two teams in the Jump Into June event. In team vaulting, six vaulters perform a four-minute, choreographed routine with up to three people on the horse at the same time.

Cohen Bogart, Donovan Moorman, Ryan Petkau and Dan Rogers not only competed in the annual red-versus-white showdown but also vied for a spot on the Midget Select team that will represent B.C. at the 2013 Midget AAA National Championships

She is survived by her children, Susan (Roopchand), Hazel (Graham) and David (Irene) and grandchildren Devon (her mother Chris and brother Jesse), Chad, Tracy, Marc (Jessica), Craig (Courtney). Norah’s love of food led her to be a dietitian in several hospitals over the years, in Ontario and finally retiring from VGH. She loved to bake and has passed on her passion to two grandsons who are chefs. Her lemon tarts will always be on the menu at Chad’s place of employment. The fact that Norah was able to continue to live in her own home is due in large part to the care and support of Chilliwack Home Health, Home Support. The daily visits were essential to keeping her as healthy and happy as she was. Thanks in particular to Slavka and Diane for your extra special care. Also, thanks to Angie Fast, Nurse Practitioner, CGH, for your regular visits, support and availability to the family. And finally, to Home Health Physiotherapist, par excellence, Isabelle Chignon, without whom Norah would likely not have been able to remain at home. We are so appreciative of all the practitioners who do home visits: We Care, for foot care; Sonus Hearing for hearing aid care, Dawn’s Hairdressing, and last but certainly not least, to Deana McLean for keeping Norah’s house clean and comfortable. The services for home care/support in this community are varied and available, one has only to inquire. Thanks also to the nurses and staff in Emergency and NU5 at CGH. The care and compassion that you exhibited will be remembered. The six nights spent at CGH was Norah’s longest hospital stay since the early 1960’s. She lived a long, healthy life. There will be no funeral by request. Donations to the charity of your choice would be appreciated.
